Brian Sholis

I am an editor, writer, and independent curator in Toronto. I am currently curating “Art’s Biggest Stage: Collecting the Venice Biennale, 2007–2019,” which opens July 4, 2019, at the Clark Art Institute; consulting for Frontier, a Toronto design agency; consulting and editing for the Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation; and serving on the jury of the 2019 Scotiabank Photography Award.

Prior to working independently, I was executive director of Gallery TPW in Toronto and, before that, curator of photography at the Cincinnati Art Museum. Earlier in my career I worked as an editor at Aperture Foundation and at Artforum. I am the author of the 2016 book Kentucky Renaissance: The Lexington Camera Club and Its Community, 1954–1974 (Yale University Press) and the editor of two previous anthologies published by the New Museum and by Sternberg Press. A longtime art critic, I have written catalogue essays for numerous art museums and my features, columns, interviews, and reviews have been published in Artforum, Frieze, Art in America, Aperture, and elsewhere.
